The Mouse Outfit

23 December / 20:00 / More Info / Buy Tickets

The Mouse Outfit are a live eight piece eclectic hip hop act from Manchester who produce a slick combination of quality samples and fiendish beats. Influenced by a smorgasbord of soul, jazz, funk, reggae and classic hip hop breaks, and laced with lyrics from some of Britain’s most promising emcees, this is conscious British hip hop at its very best.

Their live show features various guest emcee’s but is glued together by Dr Syntax, an emcee famed in his own right as a solo artist as well as a peripheral member of the mighty Foreign Beggars. It is an epic journey that continually builds in tempo and momentum fusing classic jump up themes and hip hop medleys with thumping funk basslines and classic breaks.

Having previously supported the likes of Cinematic Orchestra, Chali 2na and Souls of Mischief, the last few years have seen the outfit take their new live set to many of the UK’s leading festivals including Boomtown, Greenman, Shambala, Bestival, Glastonbury, Soundwave and Outlook where they were received with critical acclaim and hailed as the exciting future of UK hip hop.

Just announced: So Flute ft. Volcov, Danuka, Yadava & Baloo, 15th October.

15 October / 23:00 / More Info / Buy Tickets 

Since landing on the Manchester club scene only a couple of years ago, So Flute has firmly cemented its reputation as one of the go-to nights for groove bending, impossible to define vibes. They’ve spun with the likes of Giles Peterson, hosted unforgettable sessions with Motor City Drum Ensemble and Leatherette, and have already been compared to bona-fide clubbing institutions Electric Chair, Friends And Family and Keep It Unreal. Tonight we open up Band on the Wall’s dancefloor for what could be their biggest and best night yet, featuring Volcov, Danuka, Yadava & Baloo.

Passionate music digger known for his impeccable taste in soul, funk, disco and deep house music, Volcov is also the founder of more than one record label. In fact in 1998 he co-founded Archive records with the Dipiù company, where he explored the futuristic and more electronic side of the so called broken beat sound, still keeping it quite eclectic and futuristic. For the label he signed artists like Dego, Theo Parrish, Phil Asher, Domu, Nubian Mindz, Modaji, various Bugz members, Nu Era, King Britt and many others.

“In a city that spawned multi-genre nights such as Electric Chair or Friends And Family, the leading exponent currently using hip-hop DJ techniques to join the dots between soul, funk, rap, reggae and Afrobeat is Mr Scruff. So Flute aims to redress the situation, offering a similar musical smorgasbord.”

Winding along 2,728 miles of track over four days, the pair recorded classic railroad songs in waiting rooms and at trackside while the train paused to pick up passengers.
